Carlos Barbosa

Carlos Barbosa history begins around 1855, with the arrival of the first German immigrants. The biggest moment for the place development was in 1870, with Italian immigrants arrival, which constituted the largest group established here, in almost every place of the town. These immigrants came from eight regions of Italy, the majority from Vêneto and Lombardia.

Primeira Secção do Caminho Geral, Trinta e Cinco and Santa Luiza were the first names given to the locality. On January 25th, 1910, Garibaldi’s manager gives to it the official and final name, Carlos Barbosa, in honor to State Governor (1909 to 1913), who has built, during his management, Montenegro – Caxias do Sul railroad. On September 25th, 1959, Leonel Brizola, State Governor, signed the creation decree of Carlos Barbosa town.

The town is known by its solid economy, structured on industrial sector, cutlery, shoes, wood frames, furniture, milk and derivative production, among others. On mixed farming, we can highlight cattle creation and potato and corn culture.

In spite of being a young town, Carlos Barbosa has a rich history, built with Italian, German, French, Swiss, Polish, Portuguese and Brazilian ethnicities.
